We don't always give our hands the TLC they deserve. This is especially necessary in the winter — the cold weather can be harsh on hands, which are often exposed to the elements. Regular hand cream is great and all, but hear us out: Why not try using body oils on your hands? After all, we love our face oils for how well they keep our skin moisturized throughout the day. By that logic, why not use body oils on our hands? As long as you use a fast-absorbing formula, it's a win-win situation.
With the help of these nourishing body oils, your hands and cuticles will stay hydrated all winter long. Use the body oil alone or mix it with your go-to hand cream for extra moisturizing power. Keep reading for some of our favorite picks.
